If that is indeed the case, I'd definitely want a Gladiator Pro. And a Warthog Adapter for it if they are shipping at or near the same time.

Interested in the Gunfighter but not really in another plastic KG12 grip. Have a Vintage Black Mamba with a Warthog grip. I would be interested in a metal KG12 grip or modern Russian jetfighter grip on an extension for the Gunfighter.

The good thing is that that the Gunfighter is adaptable later for any grip VKB will release, so it's future proof. :)

I find future proof to be mighty strong words... but I am looking forward to try it out. Hopefully it works well for me.

Future proof within the confines of VKB's strategy, of course. That's what modular design is all about - at least that's the goal.

I want one, but I'm holding out until I see what the upcoming grips look like. I'll spend a ridiculous amount of money if someone makes a controller that has everything - no, not even everything - most of what I want. But I can't justify spending Gunfighter Pro prices (twice!) on the promise of future updates.

VKB seems to have the best track record of the modern manufacturers, both in quality and in getting their ideas to market, so I fully expect to be buying their products in the (hopefully near) future - but I have to see something first.

Do we have a time frame on preorders yet? Or still just "February"?

Also, is this going to be something with very limited preorder slots?
Or will there be enough for everyone that's requested the preorder list so far?

As of now, everything is still on track for February ordering (waiting on green light from VKB HQ; can be in a week from now, or not until February 28 - up to their schedule), and March shipping.

Usually, as it's always been with VKB, it's going to be a limited production run, but the reserve list I got allows VKB to produce accurate numbers to satisfy the demand.

Just email me (see sig) with your contact info (shipping address and phone number), and let me know exactly what you would like to reserve (seems like 1x Gunfighter Base Only and 1x TM Warthog Adapter for Gunfighter).

BTW - by adding the "Gunfighter Base Only" option to the poll, I deleted the current poll results. Luckily I took a snapshot moments before... but I cannot recreate the results, of course...

So, these were the poll numbers before me resetting everything.. doh:

Fixed - you can vote again.

I shouldn't have added that other option and thus deleting the poll results. Might as well remove the poll, as it's already done its job anyway! :)
